NAFEMS has announced the preliminary agenda for its 11th International Congress to be held in Vancouver, Canada, on May 22nd -25th 2007. With as many as four parallel sessions running over three days, the Congress is sure to provide great benefit to all those involved in simulation, FEA, CFD, MBS and CAD/CAM.
The Congress will bring together world leading industrial practitioners, consultancies, academic researchers and software developers with a common interest in engineering analysis.
ABAQUS/SIMULA are Principal Sponsors of the 2007 Congress, and the AIAA are co-sponsors.
Tim Morris, Chief Executive of NAFEMS, commented “We are delighted to report that the response to the event so far has been overwhelming. The Congress Committee has had a tough job over recent weeks and months selecting the best papers from the record number of abstracts that were submitted. In the end, over 130 papers from leading experts have gone forward for inclusion in the draft agenda.”
As well as the traditional conference sessions, the Congress this year will also include a series of other events which have been especially selected for the benefits that they can bring to the delegates.
A variety of workshops, round table discussion sessions and other meetings will add to the mix of opportunities that are provided for learning about the latest developments in the technology, and how they can be applied to real world practical applications. Mr Morris added, “We are confident that the 2007 NAFEMS World Congress will be the International Congress of the year on Simulation Technology for the Engineering Analysis Community.”
As well as the main technical tracks, the NAFEMS World Congress will also give attendees access to a comprehensive program of training courses, workshops, seminars and meetings, which are open to all. These include sessions on Multiphysics, High Performance Computing, Simulation Education and Model Quality, as well as courses on Advanced FEA and Verification and Validation. There will also be active involvement from ASME and AIAA, ensuring that the NAFEMS World Congress is an unmissable date in the simulation calendar.
